   Tulsa posted on Computers &Tech Issues  To support my two comments that there are no ads, here is a comment from Kono on 8/8.

Kono  Mysteriously, this morning all the ads that made the mother site so ugly for the past week or two are no longer there.

The ad-deployment technique that evaded blocking looked pretty impervious to me, so as much as I'd love to hear that ABP caught up to them with a new detection/filter technique, I'm inclined to guess that LCom staff (maybe even our dear Lucianne, herself ) decreed a back-out of the ad code to the earlier method (that ABP was capable of handling ).

Even if this is just a one-day reprieve, I'm grateful for the freedom to read news without having to mentally block out the visually-disturbing images every page, at least for the moment...

   Tulsa posted on Health & Diet  Benefits of sleeping in 100% cotton socks Spring and Summer.

ks/


https://sleep.org/articles/wearing-socks-to-bed/

Best cotton socks link below. Cotton is grown in Texas and milled in North Carolina. 100% cotton and stretchy. Best socks I’ve found. SOS stands for Save Our Soil and they are proud of it!

Buster Brown socks are too thin and too tightly woven. Your feet will perspire and they lose all shape in a short period of time.

Maggies Organics are too loosely woven and therefore not warm. They are also bulky.

These socks are for Spring and Summer sleeping....first link site info and all products

https://sosfromtexas.com/

buy the socks:
https://sosfromtexas.com/collections/socks/products/organic-cotton-crew-socks-3-pack

‘Arrow’ down for your size.

For winter, Smart Wool socks are the best. Tuck your Smart Wool socked feet in a warm throw with a heated Bed Buddy for tv viewing. Put a small pet bed under the pc desk with a folded throw then tuck in a heated Bed Buddy while wearing Smart Wool socks.

Because of down comforters (a second one folded at the end of the bed ) no socks are needed for sleeping in the winter

   Tulsa posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Jansgraphix. It occurred to me you are logging into The Connection straightaway and not surfing first. That is why you are getting timed out at The Connection.

I recommend you have Lucianne saved in Favorites and have The Connection saved in favorites. That way you don't log in either unless you plan to comment. That way you are not timed out at The Connection.

You can get to The Connection the first time from Luci. Then save The Connection to favorites. That way you can get straight to the Connection; read walls and log in only if you wish to comment.

Was that at all clear or helpful? lol I do hope so.

   Jansgraphix  Thanks Tulsa. Actually I do have both Luci and The Connection saved to bookmarks. And I generally do surf first on Lucianne before coming here. Not sure if that is what you are referring to. But I don't think I've been automatically logged out more than once or twice over a rather extended period of time. Maybe I'm wrong.

I used to use the Brave browser several months ago on Windows 7. But I am currently relegated to WinXP on my dual boot system, so Bravo won't work here. I have to get a different video card. This one is made for Windows 7 but the fans won't spin. But it works fine on XP except there are no drivers for XP. So I'm hoping to find a card that supports both. I used to multi boot with Win XP, 7, 8.1 and 10. But I have learned to somewhat loathe 8.1 and 10. So, no more. But as soon as I can find another good card that supports WinXP and 7 like they used to do, I will be trying Brave again.

   Tulsa  I'm in Win. 10 and alternate between Edge, FF and Brave.

You are so far ahead of me tech wise it's ridiculous. I know what I know from watching techs set up our pcs and reading on line.

You are in excellent shape. My best to you.

   Jansgraphix  I got to use my Win 7 again. Installed the Brave Browser and used it. I must say it is performing excellently! Much, much better than when it first came out. I luv it. Thanx for the reminder and the heads up.

   Tulsa  Oh Good. I've had several updates and they call for a 'refresh'. It's not a reboot. I'm just removed from the site I'm visiting and then returned.

It is out of beta and is first edition.

Have you noted Lucianne has removed ads for the last 5 days? How wonderful.

   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  Halt and Catch Fire, final season (#4 ) begins on 8/19 on AMC. You must see the first 3 seasons first. It's at Netflix and other places. Ten (10 ) episodes per season.

   Tulsa  Trivia
'HCF ('Halt and Catch Fire' ) is from one of a number of lists of humourous command mnemonics for imaginary programming languages. Others are 'BrH' ('Branch and Hang' and 'DWIM' ('Do What I Meant' ). {DWIM, if it existed, would be the single most useful programming command ever.}

Finally found this quote. I've been searching. heh How many times have I said DWIM instead of Do What I Said? lol

This is such a good series. Gratuitous sex and all.

   GO3  Sorry, not interested. First, Theron has always been full of herself and nearly always walks like she's modeling the latest fashion. Second, the last thing I want to see is another ball busting, disgruntled female anti-hero. IMO, her best performance I've seen was in Mad Max: Fury Road. So, I'm sticking with Emma Peel and Honey West.

   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  Emmylou Harris has a special on PBS 8/11. I only know her from Trio with Dolly and Linda, which I heard on my way to play bridge with a friend.

The song she does in this article is not my cup of tea. https://tinyurl.com/y95opxjd

   Wetenschapper  Really? I think she does quite an admirable job of it, if one ignores the underlying social-justice intimations. I've been a fan of Harris since the late 70's (my picture to left is more than a decade old! )and despite her, um, mature voice lacking some of the heart-tweaking nuance it had forty years ago, it's still quite competent.

   Tulsa  I don't believe I would like the song by anyone. I could not understand the words. It was sad sounding and slow.

I know her only from Trio and liked her enough to record the 2 hr special mentioned above. I hope you enjoy it.

   Tulsa posted on Coffee Klatch  Flaming Sword. I called locally and found that SHIIP is not called SHIIP in each State. It's called SHINE in FL. It's called OSHIIP in OK, etc. But by calling the 800 number I listed below, they can give you the 'SHIIP' office in your city or state and that office can tell you if there is a senior org in your city that helps you enroll in Part D or answer any and all Medicare questions about supplemental ins or anything else.

Our pharmacy is too busy too help, tho they would certainly do so if asked.
